East/West Throwtogether

Submitted From: Loyola University in New Orleans

Using any ramen noodle soup packet; I like the imported
Korean one with the name I can’t pronounce.
Boil some water
with olive oil, minced garlic, minced ginger, some basil leaves
and a wedge of lemon or lime. Then add your noodle brick along
with some romain lettuce, green onions, bean sprouts and carrots
(I get them out of the salad bar at the school, sneak them out
in an extra cup!) You can even add canned chicken which is also
found in the cheap section of a grocery market. Cook until the
consistency that you like it and serve! For extra pep, add some
sate (its a hot chili oil found in most oriental markets, you
can make it yourself with either olive oil or sesame and some
hot peper flakes and leave it alone for a month in a jar). Bon
apetit!

Tasty Tossed Off Ramen

Submitted By: Josh Wells

Submitted From: University of Wyoming

Ingredients: a bottle of olive oil (extra virgin, no wussy
light stuff), some mushrooms, and some red onions. Cook your ramen
as usual, without the flavor packet, and drain off excess water.
While ramen is cooking, sautee the onions and mushrooms until
ramen is done and then remove from heat. Put the ramen in a bowl
and liberally pour olive oil onto it, then to ss the ramen to
properly coat it all in oil. Add the coated ramen and vegetables
to the pan until the noodles have been tenderly fried, BUT NOT
CRISPED. At this point you may wish to add seasoning such as salt,
oregano, or Mrs. Dash (yummy, choose a flavor). Grated cheese
also tastes good, esp. Monterey jack. Remove from pan and toss
in a bowl to mix thoroughly… serve with chopsticks for an elegant
dinner date or use to impress guests with your cheap gourmet abilities.

Norwegian Ramen (with Surgeon General’s Warning)

Submitted By: The Noodle Family

Submitted From: California, USA

Mr. Noodlenose suggests that you use only as much seasoning as needed, then add finely sliced fresh vegetables and fishballs to your lovely snack. Fishballs can be found canned in American groceries. They are often m manufactured in Norway and are the seafood equivalent of our beloved frankfurter. They consist primarily of worms that live between the vertebrae of codfish. Japanese and Taiwanese fishballs can always be discovered in the frozen foods section of Asian foodstores. The Japanese also produce something called "fish cake". This is the same material in a prettier form. Fish cake is usually colored light red on one side. When sliced and laid atop your instant noodles, these elegant red-white leaves of fish furter will draw plaudits (or obits) from your discerning frat brothers.

Note: According to Mrs. Noodletoes, the very deadly part of the instant noodle kit is the unassuming little packet of salt/seasoning/preservatives/MSG that both Noodleguy and Noodlegal have seen unsupervised schoolmates consume with moistened fingers "as is". (See "Freebase Ramen" below.) These children are abusers who will become
addicted in time to still more dangerous chemicals. (Mrs. Noodletoes’ advisory might be taken with a grain of salt. After all, Mrs. Noodletoes also believes that Ramen Mania is a Japanese conspiracy meant to pollute the "precious bodily
fluids" of our nation’s young college-aged men and women.) Mrs. Noodletoes recommends that you discard or use less than the prescribed amount of the poisonous powder.

Noodles a La Sardines

Submitted By: Ben Hyland

Submitted From: University of Kent at Canterbury

Boil up the noodles with whatever packets of soup-base comes
with them, then add a tin of sardines (in brine, not oil.) When
these have gone all mushy, add 5/6 jalapenos and a few drops of
Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. Best enjoyed with a pint
of cold Guiness.

Note: Note from Ben: I’ve never heard of Ramens before but they
sound like UK Bachelors style noodles. Bachelors are the expensive
ones, the best(and cheapest) are from market stalls selling such
culinary delights as 6 – months out of date pickles and wet, flood-damaged
coffee. These noodles usually have product info in at least 4
South East Asian languages, and the spices in them blow your socks off.
